Raifsky Bogoroditsky Men's Monastery

   
     
     

Raifsky Bogoroditsky Men's Monastery located 30 km from Kazan on the shores of a beautiful lake, deep in the forest, in one of the divisions of the Volga-Kama State Nature Preserve, the Raifsky Bogoroditsky Men's Monastery with its white stone walls is one of the gems of seventeenth-century Russian architecture. The primary holy of the monastery is the Georgian Mother of God icon, to this day renowned for working miracles and granting healing to the sick. Today the Raifsky Monastery is one of the most frequented in the world. Regarding the complex's architecture, it's worth mentioning that it is the only monastery in Tatarstan executed in the Baroque style. The Raifsky division of the Volga-Kama Nature Preserve shows elements of southern taiga, mixed and broad-leaf forests. The arboretum contains specimens of more than 400 species of exotic plants from North America, Asia, and Europe.
